Knowledge is the key to survival, and this dual-purpose gift puts life-saving tips in the palm of your hand. Mountaineers Books drew on information from its bestselling Emergency Survival and First Aid pocket guides to illustrate a standard deck of playing cards with useful drawings and detail.
Dont Die Out There does an amazing job of making survival topics playful and memorable. Learn how to make several kinds of splints, build an emergency shelter or set up a solar still to collect waterall while playing your favorite card game. Information is also organized by suit. For instance, the next time you play hearts in your tent, you can read about basic first aid, hypothermia, frostbite, heat illness, and sprains and locations. Spades cover food, water, and evacuation techniques. Clubs include tips on CPR, head and spine injuries, fractures, bites and stings. Diamonds treat survival essentials like signaling and locating your position.
After the success of Dont Die Out There, Mountaineers Books came out with other informative card decks including Freedom of the Hills.
